Appreciating others - Part V

The last post of the week is left, so

Friday presents to you Tom Wright

Tom Wright is a professional graphic designer and is the creative talent behind Two Step Design. Tom has been working in the industry for over a decade and has developed an extremely sharp and polished style.

Tom works across the board in graphic design but shows particular passion towards album artwork and the advertising of music events. His work is always flawless and every possible detail has been finished with impeccable attention. It is his poster and album artwork designs that show a particular style and personality that is very unique. The designs are very clean and always have a strong, simple font surrounded by a complex yet subtle picture. The finished look is astounding and everything on the page works so perfectly together. His use of colour, imagery, typeface and arrangement is second to none. 

So go and take a look at his designs and show your support to the young British talent around us.

Appreciating others - Part IIII

So for the beginning of a four day weekend for many...

Thursday presents to you Hazel Castle

This young talent, Hazel Castle, is an astounding illustrator. She studied at Birmingham University, completing a degree in Illustration. Hazel is currently revamping her website, so her work can be seen on her blog and Flickr account.

Hazel's work is very elegant and evocative. Hazel often chooses to draw the female form and with her skills, she creates images that are very detailed and full of texture. She sketches her subjects in pencil, then adds blocks of colour, striking prints or text digitally. The end result is a wonderful arrangement of traditional portraits mixed with a contemporary influence 

So go and take a look at her work and show your support to the young British talent around us.

Appreciating others - Part III

Wednesday presents to you  Lara Parsons

Lara Parsons is the talent behind Parsnips Photography. This young photographer is another British talent, who is currently residing in Canada. Lara has been travelling the world for over a year now and has been documenting it every step of the way.

Her photography lies in the boundaries of Fine Art and Fashion Photography but often spills over to expose her journey through life. The unobtrusive style of her Fine Art imagery often uses moody tones with striking contrasts, but still maintains an overall feeling of warmth.

So go and take a look around her website and show your support to the young British talent around us.

Appreciating others - Part II

So continuing with the smorgasbord of creative talent I know...

Tuesday presents to you Ismay Ozga

                                                                                          Ismay Ozga is a multi-disciplined, female artist. She went to Birmingham City University where she studied Fine Art, but has used her creative talents across the board. Not only is she an accomplished illustrator, she is also a wonderful photographer and half of the jewellery company, Paper and Chain, who were featured in my blog back in February. 

Ismay's work has a very honest and personal feel to it. Her delicate pencil illustrations often feature the female form and are heavily influenced by fashion. Her breathtaking photography is mostly shot on 35mm film giving it a nostalgic and raw quality, which I feel adds to the almost auto biographical narrative of her images. 

So go and take a look at her website and show your support to the young British talent around us.

Taking the time to appreciate others...

All this week I will be posting to you the delights of creative and talented souls that I personally know.

Monday we begin with James Uren.

James Uren is a young designer who studied Contemporary Furniture and Product Design at Buckinghamshire New University. He completed his degree with an impressive first and was listed as the runner up for BDC's New Designer of the year. His fresh and ultra-modern approach to furniture design is very much worth a look. The collection represents the clean and contemporary living style that so many have adopted or look to achieve in their home.

So go and take a look and show your support to the young British talent around us.
